When you’re injured at work, it’s tough to get back on your feet. You’re in pain, you’re unable to work, and the bills are piling up. This can leave you feeling overwhelmed and at a loss for how to put your life back together.
But you don’t have to suffer without the compensation you need. You should be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits for your accident. Our attorneys will fight for your workers comp benefits and work hard to make sure you get every cent you’re owed.
When you’re at work, you’re exposed to all kinds of dangers that can lead to serious injuries. If an on-the-job injury has left you unable to work, you deserve an opportunity to seek compensation for the injuries that impact your life.

Often, when you’re injured at work, you’ll file a workers’ comp claim. These claims should be covered by your employer, but sometimes, your employer or their insurance provider may try to deny your claim.
However, a workers’ comp claim isn’t your only option. If you can’t file for workers’ compensation, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. A personal work injury claim covers injuries that were caused as a result of someone’s carelessness or negligence that directly impacted your health and safety.
Repetitive motion injuries are gradual in onset and caused by the cumulative effects of repetitive traumatic events. There’s a section of the South Carolina Code of Laws that classifies repetitive motion injuries and the claims that can be made for rightful compensation.
Slip-and-fall injuries are among the most common onsite personal injuries in a workplace. Employer or co-worker negligence often contributes to the slip-and-fall incident, creating a chain of evidence that helps you press your rightful claim for compensation.
Not surprisingly, on-the-job work injuries typically result in broken bones that require weeks or months to properly heal. You can seek compensation for these injuries as well as the lost wages over the amount of time it takes to heal from the fractures.
Call 888-HAWKLAW or talk to us using our live chat and we’ll get to work right away. You take care of you and we’ll take care of the rest.
Following the first meeting, your dedicated personal injury lawyer will launch your case. We have an investigative team with years of experience identifying what happened, recreating the incident, and collecting any evidence that helps with your case. As a digital-first law firm, you’ll be able to check in on our findings and see how your case is progressing.
Once we have what we need to build a case for your claim, we will contact the insurance company or at-fault party and attempt to negotiate a fair and just compensation for your injuries. Our goal is to do Right By You and agree on a fair and just settlement for your damages, pain, and suffering. If an acceptable settlement can’t be reached, a HawkLaw trial lawyer will advise you about the option of going to court.
